You need to look for Technical Manuals - TMs - as well.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The loading of equipment is *in general* covered in one or two FMs, but the loading of specific equipment including tie-downs, chocks, and so forth would be covered in the equipment TM. Starting about 1950-ish this info is very good. In the TMs of the previous decade it was spotty.
The US Army Heritage and Education Center has quite a few manuals digitized:

There are a number at the Combined Arms Research Library as well:

This public upload site has a number as well:
And, of course, Ebay.
